Well, there went that backup point guard. According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, Mo Williams signed a two-year, $5.6mil deal with the Portland Trail Blazers today.

Williams deal will pay him $5.6 million over two years, with player option for second season.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) August 7, 2013
With Williams out of the running, who do you think the Grizzlies will go after next? We've seen Beno Udrih's name come up a few times...
One thing is for sure, the lack of Williams means all of those Bayless/Prince/Wroten trade discussions we've all been having in the comments here lately might need to be dialed back a notch. Or... maybe the backup point guard for the Grizzlies is already on the roster?
Grizzlies and Calathes have until the 15th to come to a decision.— CamOnGriz (@CamOnGriz) August 7, 2013
